Hey all, my band is touring Mexico for 2 weeks and I was wondering honestly how concerned I should be for our safety. I've been getting mixed reviews from everyone. It's ether we'll be just fine or we are completely risking our lives. Were playing small clubs all over Mexico. What do you guys think?

With zero clue where you're going (it's a big country) your question is impossible to answer because safety varies wildly. In one sense Mexico is no different than all through Latin America... there are some very very bad places, a whole pile of normal caution places, and a few no worries places.

In any case unless you're playing a pile of all-inclusive resorts or tourist centres without a doubt you'll have to keep your wits about you, same as anywhere in Latin America.

Good luck and have fun.

Cheers,
Terry
